Here's one for throwback Thursday: Check out a Kanye West—who was 19 at the time—rapping at the grand opening of a Fat Beats record shop on 6th Ave in New York City back in 1996.

Wow, incredible shit
Yeezy taught you.
It's amazing seeing his transformation. It's like he's part of my family because I've been listening to him for so long. This is dopest thing you'll see today.
true shit. me being relatively young kanye is one of the first artists that i've watched his entire career and his tremendous strides and growth.
Yeezy been had polo
back when he used to pass the mic instead of stealing it.
nice footage he a real one from day one
Dave Chappelle was right. You can tell he was gonna be a star
Damn Ye was really just going in at cyphers and shit? lol
Overall lyricism in 1996 >>> 2014 in most cases
Real shit. Gotta love how being smart was encouraged back then. God damn I miss the 90's! (*proudly starts to bump the shit out of Poor Righteous Teachers)
YE IS A LEGEND IN MY EYES. [PAUSE]
